Sinossi

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Novel

Where there's smoke...
Kaz Jorgensen is used to fear--the anxiety of negotiating treacherous currents as she captains her family's fishing trawlers, the terrifying nightmares of the day she almost lost her life on the river. But now a man is dead, an arsonist has set the Anna Marie ablaze, and her brother is missing.
There's fire...
Michael Chapman knows how to take the heat--as the new fire chief of Astoria, Oregon, he's dealt with more than his share. No way can he afford to get involved with the sister of a suspect. But the scorching attraction between him and Kaz burns out of control, and when someone takes a shot at her, his protective instincts kick in. Whatever happens, he can't allow another woman to die because of him.

Reviews:

"...an intriguing contemporary romantic suspense with an engrossing plot and lots of mystery that keeps you guessing. With this debut, P.J. Alderman shows that she is clearly an author to look out for." --Fallen Angel Reviews

"The plot twists and turns like a fishing line in a rip tide." --New Mystery Reader

"If P.J. Alderman's first foray into writing is any indication then we should be on the receiving line for some enjoyable books. Her characters are very real and kind of rough around the edges, which is what make them so wonderful to get to know. Even the bad guys have their moments. That was what made it an interesting ride to see who was responsible for the murders, arson and general mayhem. Alderman, who paints a wonderful picture of the lives and trials of the fishermen born into a life aboard the trawlers and have to circumnavigate treacherous waters, brings the story to life." --Fresh Fiction

"For a debut author, P.J. Alderman does a fantastic job of creating intrigue, suspense, drama, romance, and so much more. The plot is well laid out and incredibly plausible with characters who are full and real...if A Killing Tide is P.J.’s debut, a bright future is on the horizon and I can’t wait to see more." --Once Upon a Romance

"Kudos to Ms. Alderman on a job well-done. The edgy THE KILLING TIDE is a fabulous debut, an edge-of-your-seat chiller guaranteed to thrill." --Romance Reader at Heart

A young woman, Kaz Jorgenson leaves her consultanting job in San Francisco to return to her hometown of Astoria, Oregon. Answering a call from her twin brother Gary needs help. Disaster in the form of a fire on one of her family's fishing ships greets her on arrival. Once the blaze is contained a bigger shock hits home when the corpse of family friend Ken Lundquist is found on board. The police suspect Gary, who has vanished, killed him and set the fire to hide the evidence.

Michael Chapman the new fire chief thought he left scandal and a suspicious death behind in Boston when he came to Astoria. As an experienced trained arson investigator, he begins making inquiries into the deadly blaze. He and Kaz are attracted to one another, but neither plans to act on their feelings. He refuses to have anything to do with the sister of the prime suspect especially after the fiasco back in New England with his former fiancée; she assumes he wants to hang her brother so she rejects Michael in order to not betray Gary.

And then chemistry takes over...

This is actually where the book breaks down a little. The scenes where Kaz and Michael discover and begin to act on their attraction for one another, are very clunky and sophmoric. It was hard to think that the emotions and reactions of mature adults were being explored. This was a letdown and detracted from the over all quality of the story.

Conversely the scenes on the boat, fighting the breaks in the Columbia River were terrific. Could have used more of them.

Strong writing over all, but weak characterization and dialogue in places. Fast pacing and TIme well spent on this one!

I liked this story and I'll read more by this author. I did figure out "whodunit," but that didn't affect my enjoyment of the book.

What I liked best was that it was a good, even mix of mystery, suspense, and romance. There was plenty of mystery and suspense so that the romance didn't overwhelm the other parts of the story and yet the romance was basic to the story. Well done.

What I liked least was that Kaz, the heroine, came dangerously close to TSTL a couple of times. The author managed to salvage that for me, but it really was close to the edge. I liked the characters, and that made it worthwhile.

There were a few words missing but it was relatively free of annoying errors.

Anyone living in the Columbia River area would be interested in reading "A Killing Tide." Kaz and her brother Gary come from a family whose lives are tied to the water and their family business. The back story remains a mystery just long enough to be suspenseful. The loss of her family's fishing trawler and the mysterious death of a friend is the catalyst that kicks the story into gear.

The story was a bit cliche'. Kaz returns home to Astoria from her big city job and a new fire chief, Michael Chapman comes to town at about the same time the trawler, "Anna Marie" mysteriously burns. Readers can see the mellow drama unfold as Champan works his way into Kaz's life during the arson investigation that follows. For a debut novel, Alderman put together a captivating story with a cast of unique and meaningful characters. I'm looking forward to reading more from this author.

A Killing Tide by indie author P. J. Alderman takes place in the small Oregon city of Astoria; a town I am quite familiar with. With simple strokes, she evokes the atmosphere of the coastal town, the eternal grayness and eternal rain. Based in Astoria, Oregon, Columbia River Bar Pilots were established in 1846 to ensure the safety of ships, crews and cargoes crossing the treacherous Columbia River Bar, which is recognized as one of the most dangerous and challenging navigated stretches of water in the world. The men and women who fish those waters are also a rare breed.

(Kasmira) Kaz Jorgensen was once a well-known local fisher-woman, and has recently returned to Astoria and fishing after a long absence from fishing as financial a consultant in San Francisco. Her best friend had called her, telling her there was trouble with her brother Gary, but not what the trouble was. She has not been able to talk much to him, due to having to be out on her own boat, the Kasmira B, and things are somewhat distant between them.

She has not been welcomed back with open arms by her brother or the community at large. Having just lost half her pots and most of her catch to a vandal at sea, she brings her boat in late. She arrives at The Redemption, a tavern frequented by the local fishers, and meets up with her best friend, Detective Lucy McGuire who is also her brother’s girlfriend. Also eating dinner in the Redemption is the new fire chief, Michael Chapman. Just hired from Boston, Chapman is a man with a history, which comes out as the story progresses.

That evening in the Redemption, Michael witnesses Kaz trying to break up a violent disagreement between Kaz’s brother Gary and his friend, Chuck. Because she is no longer considered a member of the community for reasons which gradually emerge. Everyone warns Kaz to stay out of ‘it’; indicating to her that whatever is going on between Chuck and Gary is big and it involves the whole fishing community. Michael Chapman intervenes, to Kaz’s irritated chagrin.

Following that, a friend is murdered; a family man who is also a crewman on her brother’s boat, the Anna Marie. Gary, a vet suffering from post-traumatic-stress syndrome, is immediately suspected of murdering him and committing arson to burn his boat to cover it up. Making things worse, Gary has vanished. Police Chief Jim Sykes, a man with political ambitions, is hot on Gary’s trail, sure he is the culprit. Michael, as fire-marshal, is leaping to no conclusions, and is handling the investigation his own way.

This is an intense tale of greed and small-town lust for power and easy money. Each and every character is fully fleshed out and you immediately like or dislike them with one exception. Jim Sykes remains somewhat of an enigma right up to the end.

The attraction between Kaz and Michael Chapman is part of what makes this tale so engrossing. The possibility of their romance is a thread which weaves in and out of the tapestry that is this mystery. Right up to the end, I was unsure as to whom the culprit was and the ending is a thrilling as any you could ask for.

First published in 2006, A Killing Tide was my introduction to P.J. Alderman’s work. She has become one of my go-to mystery writers, and I have enjoyed everything she has written.

I admit to a predilection toward liking this book as I also live on the Oregon Coast - which is a huge feature in this book. But it lived up to my expectations nicely!
I found the book well-plotted, well-written, and good at describing the "feeling" of the coastal communities. I kept reading when I should have been doing other things.
The main character was terrifically interesting, and the secondary characters were done well enough that I never felt like saying "who?", which is a treat to a picky reader.
Thank you - and I will definitely look for other books by this author!
